The Party went on that political leaders need to understand that the great call for change that they heard from the people in the 2018 election was not merely for a change of Government but for a change from the hardship they have endured for so long.
The NGC said political leaders need to understand further that the people are losing patience and can no longer pretend that all is well.
Hardship for the common man and woman in Sierra Leone today the Party went on is not imaginary but it real, adding that it is true that the problems started long before the current regime came to power some nineteen months ago but that things are getting worse and at a rate that is becoming frightening.
Among other things, the Party called on government and other opposition parties to put politics aside and collectively consider how rapidly things have deteriorated, making life hard and almost unbearable for the common man.
“We at the NGC consider that at this moment our country is facing a state of economic emergency and that no other priority is more urgent now than reducing the burden of hardship on the common man”, the Party added while highlighting the increase in prices of basic commodities across the country.
